SmartGraft, a new paradigm in treatment for anyone experiencing hair loss.
Dr. Arshanapalli shared this brief Q&A to give us his insights on this exciting approach to hair restoration.
What Is Hair Restoration, And What Techniques Are Offered At Uda?
Hair restoration is the process of stopping hair loss and attempting to re-grow hair to restore one’s natural hairline. Hair restoration generally involves medications, procedures, or both.
UDA offers the full spectrum of treatments available including medical therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, laser treatments, low level light therapy (LLLT), and hair transplantation
Can You Tell Me About Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation moves hairs from an area where the patient has good hair density to an area with lower hair density. The goal is to increase the density of hair in the recipient site without any noticeable change in the appearance of the donor site. At UDA, we use the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method of hair transplantation using the SmartGraft device. This allows us to move hairs without leaving any appreciable scarring in the donor area. The older method of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) leaves a large linear scar on the scalp.
Are The Results Permanent?
Yes, but it’s not that simple. The hairs that are transplanted will be there permanently, but without any additional treatments (such as medical therapy) the surrounding hair can continue to thin. That’s why it’s really important to see a hair loss expert for the best, most natural results.
What is the recovery like after a hair transplant procedure?
Unlike prior techniques, SmartGraft’s FUE method does not use scalpels or sutures, so recovery is much easier. You need about a week of down time after the procedure, and then you can go back to all your normal activities. There is little to no pain during or after the procedure, and your scalp will looks totally normal by the end of that first week.
Do you have to shave your head for the SmartGraft procedure?
No. For males, the hair can be cut into a short fade in the donor area and the hair can be left at normal length in the recipient area. For females, a thin strip on the back of the head can be shaved while leaving the rest of the hair at normal length. This way, the donor site can be completely hidden with the rest of the hair.
Does The Hair Transplant Look Like ‘Hair Plugs’ When It Is Healed?
No. Older methods of hair transplantation involved movement of multiple hair follicles all at once. This made the transplanted hair look artificial and unnatural. The process has been refined greatly, and now only individual hair follicles are moved. Once everything is healed, it has a completely natural look.
What Areas Can Be Treated By Hair Transplantation?
We can transplant hairs to increase density on the scalp, eyebrows, and even beard area.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Hair Transplantation?
Anyone who suffers from androgenetic alopecia (what is commonly referred to as male pattern and female pattern hair loss). There are considerations that can affect the quality of results of a hair transplantation procedure, but anyone who is unhappy with their hair loss could benefit greatly from a consultation with us.
Restoring lost hair can bring some people life-changing benefits in confidence, and emotional well-being, and we are excited to offer this service at United Dermatology Associates!
